Surgeons at Sea: Royal Navy Medical Officers' journals

The ADM 101 series of journals compiled by Royal Navy surgeons on emigrant and convict ships in the period 1793-1880, are now catalogued and searchable on The National Archives website. Journals can be searched by the name of the ship, surgeon, the patient as well as the disease or ailment. Only a selection of the journals have been digitised. See the list by scrolling down to the bottom of the page. To search for journals that have not been digitised but may have a summary, click on 'The Catalogue' then 'Search the Catalogue' then put in ADM101 in the Department or Series code and put the name of a ship, surgeon or patient in the Word or phrase box. The full journals are also available in the Mitchell Library on open access microfilm (AJCP collection).
